Nightfall Mysteries: Curse of the Opera
Glad I didn't listen to the bad reviews
I'm not done playing, but thought I'd put in a good review amongst a lot of negative ones. I am finding the game to have a good level of challenge, but still playable. Everything makes sense. The players voices are good, especially Giles. Enjoying it so far. I bought on sale, and am not sorry.

Not impressed that I was playing the trial, had to quit, and was required to completely start over when I went back to play.
It does seem like a very good game.

Great Game. Well Done, Fun & Challenging
I love this game. Don't understand the negative reviews. I prefer Hidden Object games that lean more to hidden object scenes & puzzles than adventure. But I like adventure too. This game has the right balance for me. The puzzles & hidden objects can be challenging but I don't enjoy a game if they're not. The graphics, sound & story are fun and very well done. For me, it was one of the few games I've played in the likes of Mystery Files: Ravenhurst.

Very Good Game
I really enjoyed this game. It was the first of a series. Actually, it came out 1st, but should have been 2nd to keep the story straight. It's a good buy at full price, even better as a DD.

Very well done
I like the Nightfall Mysteries series. It's of a good length and has a great story line and great characters. I guess if you're not a real HOG fan, perhaps this isn't for you. It's not the easiest HOG out there, it's just challenging enough to keep you interested and if the puzzles are too much, there is always the skip button. I am looking forward the next installment in this series, I've played all three and liked them all.

A lot of hours of fun!
The game is sometimes difficult, but challenging and very intriguing.
I reccomend this game!

Great game overall.
Well, I like this game because of the graphics and sounds are excellent, also the character's sounds. The locations and HOS are interesting as well, and the journal is helpful. The puzzles are challenging, although I gave up on some. The hint refills are quite fast and its unlimited so yay, hahaha.
I also like the aura of the game and the characters. This game is really addicting, I played this over 5 times.
I find some HOS frustrating because AFTER you find items, you need to do something like "find a hammer and break the xxx" which is quite a waste of time for me.
Since the puzzles are challenging, I stated before I gave up on some. The thing is, the skip button is REEAALLYYY long before you can click it!
Last thing, I hate the ending. The whole game is interesting but the ending is just ew and dense. I won't state what happened in the ending to avoid spoilers but it's just... not that good.
Although there are some not-so-good points in the game, I had a fun time playing this, despite some frustrating HOS/puzzles and THE ENDING. Oh god.

My least favorite of the whole trilogy
The only reason why I went ahead and paid for the full game is because I wanted to own the whole series. Not my best idea. I won't go into too many details about the poor graphics and the weird ending, since so many other reviews have. I will say that the music was OK, though.

HOG all but impossible without using hints
This game had a great story line and not too many places to jump back and forth to. What lowered the rating is too many HOGs with objects too hard to find. Many of the objects were hidden in dark areas that only a hint could locate. Extremely frustrating. Because of this every time an HOG came up I wanted to quit playing.

Heavy on the HOS
I prefer the occasional HOS and more puzzles and finding and using objects. This was HOS after HOS, and I don't know if they were really hard or I was just bored because I kept hitting the hint button. Also, there was no option for play difficulty, so stuff sparkles. No hint button during play, so if you get stuck, you need to either go everywhere looking for sparkles or check the walkthrough.
